“A gem!”
Reviewed July 13, 2012

We needed to be near Poitiers for a wedding and the whole weekend was made all the more enjoyable by staying two nights at the nearby Le Chai. We were warmly welcomed by Martine to her beautifully renovated property where every detail of style and elegance is evident. The bedroom was spacious and comfortable, windows opening on to the pretty garden and swimming pool. Peaceful indeed. In the evening of the second night we had the most delicious meal, eaten outside on the sunny patio and breakfast was just as excellent - great variety and totally delicious. Delightful and thoughtful hosts. Wholeheartedly recommended.

We were travelling to the Lot area and stayed at Le Chai as a halfway stop and again on our return.This is a great place to stay for stop over or longer as it is in a good position for exploring the area. Martine and Frederick are fantastic hosts and lovely people. On request Martine made us a meal to remember - 5star, thank you Martine and Fredericks selection of wine made our evening.
Do not pass this gem.

We stumbled upon this B&B having left the last couple of nights of our trip open. We couldn't have been luckier!
The property externally looks like a French longere but as soon as the gates open and you go through to the rear of the property you are greeted by a gorgeous tropical looking swimming pool surrounding by beautiful palms, ferns and ancient olive trees.
The property has been recently renovated and internally is like something out of an interior design magazine. Both Martine and Frederic, the owners have created the most gorgeous property, designed with flair and style and creating a lovely calm and relaxing air. It was very hot when we stayed and yet internally the property is cool and airy.
Our room, Chardonnay, was large with a gorgeous bathroom en-suite with two basins and a wonderful walk in shower. The bed was very comfortable with lovely crisp bedlinen.
Martine prepared a sumptuous dinner which was eaten with them outside on the tearrace. There was beautiful local wine and cheese and a lovely home made olive bread as one of the appetizers.They are wonderful, warm and welcoming hosts and we had a lovely evening.
Our breakfast the following morning was again on the terrace; croissants accompanied by a home made nut bread and a lemon cake to die for. After a visit to a local market, recommended by our hosts we spent the afternoon relaxing by the pool, and truly chilled out!
Our two nights really were fantastic and we cannot recommend the property and our hosts highly enough.
